28. I read a number of them decades ago but the best one I ever read was

Blood, Money & Power by Barr McClellan. If you remember Scott McClellan, you know that he was a press secretary for George W. Bush*. The author of this book is his father.

The History Channel featured material in his book, and it was that broadcast that infuriated the Johnson family. Perhaps you remember that.

Some of the tidbits in the two recent books I have heard advertised contain material that was originally published by Barr McClellan. Especially prominent is/was the name of the sharpshooter McClellan thinks really assassinated the President.

I wrote a review of this book and posted it here. I will find it and post a link later. But McClellan was an attorney in a Texas law firm, and the partner he worked with was Johnson's lawyer from the time Johnson first became a Congressman. He remained his attorney for decades.

McClellan has a list in the book of people Johnson was responsible for murdering, and one name on the list was Johnson own sister. She was a hooker and drank a lot. Johnson feared she would ruin his political career by revealing everything she knew about him. So he eliminated her.

McClellan has respectable credentials and impressive documents of evidence are presented in the book. I think his book is most credible, and I highly recommend it.
